Workhorses of Russia

This is a collection of photographs of machinery at work. Here the vehicles don’t look like those from bright catalogues. Their look corresponds to the working conditions they have to work under.


Maximum speed of the BelAZ is 55 kmh. But no matter how slowly it runs, it’s still very impressing.

A Japanese crane. Its load-carrying ability is 120 tons!

These EKG-4.6B excavators made in Russia are over 40 years old and it proves their good quality and reliability.

A hydraulic dredger.

Passengers call LiAZs ‘fridges’. These buses won ill fame for the fact that they had very poor heating.

More cranes.

This poor workhorse didn’t make it to its destination point and burnt halfway.

A boring machine.

A double-section diesel locomotive 2TE116. The photo is taken in Norilsk.

This dump car has a load-carrying ability of 105 tons and is used for transporting ore.

Empty cisterns in Kayerkan, Krasnoyarsk Territory.

An ancient excavator.

Such vehicles are used for transporting people working at mines.

A new Caterpillar.

This excavator has been reconstructed and is half assembled now.

What has remained after an EKG-4.6B…

And EKG-8.

An old BelAZ tire tread.

A Japanese Komatsu.

You’ve seen this diesel locomotive already.

This is what it carries.

A DEK caterpillar crane.

Another diesel locomotive.

This is just a little baby…

If compared with these monsters.

A new loader.

A truck.

A railway toiler.

These photographs were taken at a port in Dudinka, Krasnoyarsk Territory.

Location: Norilsk, Dudinka, Kayerkan
